Each episode combines the book's mix of comic memoir and polemic, structured around two or three dramatised comic scenes from Moran’s life (from being a 13-stone 13-year-old in Wolverhampton, through being the youngest journalist at Melody Maker, to getting married, having children and a career as a columnist) interspersed with her thoughts on subjects that range from the necessity of big knickers, to the experience of giving birth and having an abortion.
